We usually book out hotel in Crystal City, but we are looking for a nice hotel near the White House and the Smithsonian.  Thank you so much!

It has been years since I stayed in DC, but it was at the Mayflower Hotel and that is about a mile from the Smithsonian.  I remember the hotel as being very nice, but I was in DC for work, so I did not spend much time at the hotel.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

The JW Marriot on Pennsylvania Avenue is nice and in a great location. Easy walk to both the White House and the National Mall/Museums!

Not knowing your price range, the Hotel Moncaco is beautiful and in a historic building. The Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill is nice. The W Hotel is right across from the White House. The Mandarin Oriental is on the south side of the mall. Might I suggest you pull up Google Maps for Washington and search Hotel. That way you can see all available hotels, locations and rates. Be sure to check out advance tickets for the new African-American Museum. It is amazing. Restaurant alert - Maison Kayser is opening on F St. NW at 14th. Eric Kayser is a Parisian baker who has started opening shops in the US. The breads, desserts and cafe foods are amazing.
